2018 Africa Summit for Women and Girls in Tech (Accra, Ghana)
October 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The World Wide Web Foundation and the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), in partnership with the Ghana Ministry of Communications, OSIWA, the African Development Bank UN Women and Internet Society, will host the 2nd Africa Summit on Women and Girls in Technology.
The 2018 Summit will bring together the growing network of women and girls in technology policy in Africa for three days of peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, hands-on workshops, and networking to build on efforts initiated at the 2016 Summit to promote digital gender equality across the continent.
Furthermore, it will offer a critical forum on how technology policies and plans can further the rights and interests of African women and girls. We will engage high-level participants, including African women leading in technology and ICT policy, to debate policy solutions and contribute to policy processes on broadband internet access, women’s empowerment, women’s leadership in various ICT industries and sustainable development.
